“All kinds of funny—raucously, wickedly, sweetly, saucily, surprisingly, profanely funny…a wonderful novel.” —Jess Walter, author of The Financial Lives of the Poets “Deft and funny, true and real. If you read one book this year, read this one.” —Molly Jong-Fast, author of The Social Climber’s Handbook Senior editor at the online literary magazine The Nervous Breakdown and author of Totally Killer, author Greg Olear brings us a not-so-typical day in the life of stay-at-home dad Josh Lansky, juggling myriad fatherly responsibilities while dealing with the maddening realization that his away-on-business wife just might be having an affair. Fathermucker is a sweet, heartrending, often hilarious look at family life from the dad’s perspective that Nick Hornby fans will most certainly respond to. As Jessica Anne Blau, author of Drinking Closer to Home and The Summer of Naked Swim Parties so insightfully points out, “Only a writer with the verve, daring, and great talent of Greg Olear could pull off a novel that deals with sippy cups, masturbation, autism spectrum disorder, affairs, and play-dates all at once.”

During a kachina ceremony at the Tano Pueblo, the antics of a dancing koshare fill the air with tension. Moments later, the clown is found bludgeoned to death, in the same manner a reservation schoolteacher was killed only days before. Officer Jim Chee and Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn believe that answers lie in the sacred clown's final cryptic message to the Tano people. But to decipher it, the two Navajo policemen may have to delve into closely guarded tribal secrets—on a sinister trail of blood that links a runaway, a holy artifact, corrupt Indian traders, and a pair of dead bodies.

All the while she survives exorcisms, radical taboos, satanic back-masking on records, muscle men for Jesus, and cool, mulleted youth group leaders. Eventually Erika emerges as a young, married adult in spiritual limbo. Devangelical is a political and personal exploration of h.

A novel of sex, dads, and rock & roll. His rock star days may be behind him, but stay-at-home dad Grant Kelly's life is getting more interesting by the day. It's the beginning of the post 9/11 era, and he and his wife and four-year-old son have traded a New York City apartment for a Catskills farmhouse, where ghosts from the past, worries for the future, and temptations in the present converge to bring about drastic changes in their marriage, their friendships, and their family.

A stunning debut novel." – Rosanne Cash, multi-Grammy winner, author of New York Times Bestseller COMPOSED "Whether writing about music, parenthood, or life in the sticks, every page crackles with been-there-done-that verisimilitude.

A triumphant debut." – Greg Olear, author of the Los Angeles Times bestseller FATHERMUCKER "Parenthood, adultery, love, lust, ambition, loss, friendships gone to seed, a marriage at the turn of this century in full tilt midlife madness, with rock and roll in the bones and on the soundtrack. Warren creates a sensory world so sharply observed, the experience of reading becomes visceral. It pulled me in and I didn’t want to let go." -- Beverly Donofrio, author, New York Times bestseller RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS

Narrated by a fifteen-year-old autistic savant obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, this dazzling novel weaves together an old-fashioned mystery, a contemporary coming-of-age story, and a fascinating excursion into a mind incapable of processing emotions. Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, Christopher is autistic. Everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. At fifteen, Christopher’s carefully constructed world falls apart when he finds his neighbour’s dog Wellington impaled on a garden fork, and he is initially blamed for the killing. Christopher decides that he will track down the real killer, and turns to his favourite fictional character, the impeccably logical Sherlock Holmes, for inspiration. But the investigation leads him down some unexpected paths and ultimately brings him face to face with the dissolution of his parents’ marriage. As Christopher tries to deal with the crisis within his own family, the narrative draws readers into the workings of Christopher’s mind. And herein lies the key to the brilliance of Mark Haddon’s choice of narrator: The most wrenching of emotional moments are chronicled by a boy who cannot fathom emotions. The effect is dazzling, making for one of the freshest debut in years: a comedy, a tearjerker, a mystery story, a novel of exceptional literary merit that is great fun to read.

"Lenore Zion takes readers on a journey down the rabbit hole of the human condition. It is beautiful. It is ugly. And it is brilliant." Tom Hansen, author of "American Junkie" "Zanily macabre, refreshingly irreverent, unimpeachably funny, Lenore Zion is living proof of Oscar Wilde's assertion that there are no dull subjects, only dull writers, because damn it, "her" dead pets "are" interesting." Greg Olear, author of "Fathermucker" and "Totally Killer" "Zion's fearless writing mirrors what's disgusting and great about the human condition." Tony DuShane, author of "Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk" "Reminiscent of David Sedaris' work in its wit, compassion, and honesty, but Zion's breathy, stream-of-consciousness confessional style is all her own. She reveals her most hilarious thoughts on topics ranging from face cancer to elder care." Summer Block "The most disquieting, surprisingly poignant and shockingly honest stories you will ever do yourself the favor of reading." Kimberly M. Wetherell, award-winning filmmaker "A really really funny book. I suspect a small camera has been installed in each copy, and every time we laugh, Zion is taking notes, plotting her next triumph..."
